Social inclusion is a multifaceted concept. The Inclusive Australia Social Inclusion Index focuses on five key aspects of social inclusion, using items from scientifically-tested scales to measure individuals:
- Sense of belonging and wellbeing
- Prejudicial attitudes and experiences of discrimination
- Amount and quality of contact with people from minority groups
- Willingness to volunteer in inclusion activities; and
- Willingness to advocate for social inclusion.
- People on a low income, had lower levels of wellbeing in the country compared with other groups studied.
- Half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples surveyed experienced major discrimination (such as being unfairly fired) in the past 2 years and 'everyday' discrimination (such as being treated with less respect) at least weekly.
- LGBTIQ+ people had lower levels of identification with Australia.
- Religious and racial minorities were targeted by some of the highest levels of prejudice in Australia, although this has been declining since 2017.
